The Arkell residence sits perched atop an 11 acre swatch of land east of Nipomo. The site, hilly and untouched, has views as far as the eye can see that sweep towards the Pacific Ocean and Santa Maria Valley. Due to the steep nature, the garage level is buried in the hill, providing the foundation for one wing of bedrooms and an office. The spacious great room and master wing curve around to form a protected Mediterranean style courtyard, ideal for entertaining on those warm Central Coast nights. Other amenities include a large wine cellar, outdoor barbecue facilities and a custom sauna.

Alongside the main house sits a sizeable guest house, complete with kitchen, living room and deck – which also capitalizes on the dramatic views. This home is the epitome of a contemporary Spanish style home, featuring smooth finish stucco, shaped wood rafter tails and an authentic 2 piece clay tile roof. It was designed around a desire for entertaining, maintaining the integrity of the site and fully immersing in the gorgeous Central California scenery – we look forward to seeing it completed in 2016!
